Poonam Yadav, contestant in Zee’s musical reality show SaReGaMaPa, who hails from Lucknow,can be now declared as the winner among girls. When there is a will to prove, single minded focus on life’s ambition, a determination to succeed and one has abundance of talent, even the toughest of hardships cannot hide one from coming out and catching the eye of the millions and catch the eye of the audience. Such is the story of a the talented Poonam Jadhav who rose from a position of nothing to reach the top 4 league of Saregamapa C2007. Her voice and versatility spoke on her behalf. A person who struggled so much to barely survive, today her journey to this show is a story that can be an inspiration for many underprivileged ones who due to hardship and lack of opportunity give up.
Poonam and her family’s entire life have been very tough and full of struggle. She lost her father even before she was born. Her mother had to work as a domestic help and sold roasted corns to bring up Poonam and her sister. On the other hand this 26yr old girl used to work as an assistant in one of the telephone booth in Lucknow to meet household needs.
In all this limelight or glory if apart from music another thing that makes Poonam stand out in a crowd, it is her humility. When she was congratulated for all her achievements in both professional and personal life, she humbly accepted the accolades and passed on the credit by saying.. “I did nothing it was Inshallah, who did all, I was just a means”. Kudos, Poonam. We are proud of you and wish you the very best in life and future endeavors.
